HeadStart Kernow

HeadStart Kernow is a partnership programme to develop resilience and mental well-being in young people. It is Cornwall Council-led and Big Lottery-funded.

HeadStart Kernow is:

  • focused on young people aged 10 – 16 as evidence clearly demonstrates that half of diagnosed lifetime mental ill-health cases begin before the age of 14, and 75% before the age of 18;
  • co-produced with young people who inform and influence it and are key stakeholders;
  • universal, and about prevention with targeted support;
  • a  ‘Test and Learn’ programme;
  • striving to achieve system change;
  • doing things differently – we embrace new and innovative ways of thinking and working and people are at the forefront of what we do.

“I’ve been more happy and I’ve got someone to talk to once a week about what’s been going on and how things are changing. I’ve got someone that listens to me and understands what’s happening and it feels nice that someone actually understands me for once. HeadStart sessions have helped me to find things that make me feel happy, to make friends and to feel less anxious around people.”  Tom – 13.
